High Quality Silk Bedding & Production
Our silk is different because our family manages every part of the
process, from the mulberry fields to manufacturing, and fulfillment
to customer service. This lets us guarantee a level of quality that
other silk producers simply cannot.
It starts in the lush Mulberry fields of Houshan region of Anhui
Province, China, where fine silk production has a long and
Our family has contracted with thousands of local farmers who grow
mulberry leaves and nurture the silk worms as they spin their
cocoons. We have been awarded the National Poverty Alleviation
Enterprise certificate from China's State Council, in recognition
of our role addressing rural poverty by supporting farmers.
Once the cocoons are grown, the farmers deliver them to our family
company, where they are spun into raw Mulberry silk fibers. Because
the silkworms of the Bombyx mori moth are fed only mulberry leaves,
the resulting silk is some of the finest available in the world.
Pure white in color and made up of individual long fibers, Mulberry
silk is more refined than other types of silks, such as wild silk,
which are less uniform in color and texture, with shorter strands.
Our decades of experience and expertise in harvesting and
manufacturing raw silk is so well-respected we assisted in the
drafting of China's National Standards for the manufacture of raw
silk and silk duvets.
In fact, our silk is the finest quality available -- a full
22-momme count, which is the measure of silk's quality and
thickness. Our deep, luxurious charmeuse weave gives all of our
items an unmistakable drape. It’s our unique combination of momme
count, attention to weave, quality control, exclusive mulberry
diet, and impeccable craftsmanship that make our products the best
out there. Some high-end suppliers take some of these steps, but
we’re confident no other silk bedding and sleepwear company goes to
the lengths we do to guarantee you the finest quality available.
How can we be so confident that our silk is the best? Because we
ordered silk products from our competitors to gauge their quality.
We even invited customers to feel our silk next to other producers’
material, in blind touch-tests – and Mantito’s silk won out every
We invite you to take a close look at our quality, and compare it
to anyone. Here’s an example of the quality of our stitching (right
side) compared head-on with a competitor (left side). The
difference is easy to see, and is evident when you do a
side-by-side comparison with any of our competitors.
The woven silk fabric is dyed to the highest international
standards for environmentally responsible coloring. Our advanced
dying process means your silk bedding and sleepwear items have a
rich and deep color throughout. Plus, you can mix and match with
confidence, knowing that our colors are consistent.
The finished material is hand cut and stitched into bedding and
sleepwear by artisans who have years of experience working with
silk. Their pride of workmanship is evident in every stitch and
thoughtful detail of Manito's bedding and sleepwear, from our
invisible zippers and elegant pillow ties, to the rich and
When it comes to crafting our products, we don’t take the shortcuts
other producers do. For example, even the trim and piping in our
quilted pillows is 100% mulberry silk, not the artificial material
some of our competitors use.
Indeed, in our stunning Quilted Collection the beauty goes deeper
than the surface: Manito features 100% silk floss batting, not the
polyester batting most manufacturers use, so you benefit from the
healthy, natural breathability of silk through and through.
Since we put the Manito name on our all of products, we jealously
protect our reputation: Our quality assurance team hand-inspects
each piece before it leaves our factory. From there, all of our
products are shipped to our new retail, customer service, and
fulfillment center in Vancouver, BC, on Canada’ West coast.
It’s a long journey from the mulberry fields to your door, but
being a family owned company lets us control quality every step of
the way, ensuring your total satisfaction – guaranteed!
